      Hi everyone , I just started playing on Titan and got dealt AQ in MP played it acording to the SSS, even if i had more than 2,5$ on NL10, here how it went.

      saw flop | saw showdown

      Button bonehead111 ($14.25)
      SB nagyka2 ($6.51)
      BB froidenhaus69 ($1.74)
      UTG videolucas ($9.95)
      UTG+1 harryploteur82 ($1.60)
      MP Lugansk ($2.66)
      MP nebari22 ($2.00)
      MP hero ($3.67)
      CO-1 1porwal100 ($1.70)
      CO spm ($14.89)

      Preflop: hero is in MP with Q:diamond: A:club:
      4 folds, hero raises to 0.40, 3 folds, nagyka2 calls 0.35, 1 fold.

      Flop (0.90) A:diamond: 9:club: J:heart:
      nagyka2 checks, hero bets 0.60, nagyka2 calls 0.60.

      Turn (2.10) 3:spade:
      nagyka2 checks, hero bets 1.50, nagyka2 calls 1.50.

      River (5.10) Q:club:
      nagyka2 bets 1.70, hero moves all-in for 1.17

      nagyka2 shows Q:spade: 9:heart:
      hero shows Q:diamond: A:club:

      hero wins 7.97 with Two pair, Aces and Queens with a Jack for a kicker

      As its the first hand im posting, and wish to do it more often, can anyone tell me if i did good and help me improve my game !! thanks in advance !

      Well, first of all, this is not the SSS hand posting forum.

      Secondly, you are sitting with 36bb stack. Why?
      If:
      - You just doubled up. Then I think it is often good for beginners to only play AA,KK (QQ) until they blinded out, because you can make mistakes with a larger stack with the other SSS hands.

      - You play SSS with 36bb. Please sit with 20bb, or it is not SSS and only fish-style play.


      If you had just doubled up, then you played this fine. Nh

      Then it's all right, but I would still be careful with playing AQo with a double stack as a beginner. Still it's definately doable of course if you think you can handle it, but its no mistake to just fold it with a 2x stack :) SSS is meant to eliminate postflop mistakes, and I remember myself that nothing sucks more than donking off a double stack ;)

      hehe, Im trying to stick to the SSS rules but i think this one turned out good for me but definetly not doing it in other circumstance, especialy if im over 25 BBs !

      Ill try to keep mistakes cheaper instead of losing a doubled up stack i just got ! thanks for the advice :)
